ENGLISH (half-day daily)
From PN (18 months) to N1 (3 years old), our focus is on listening, speaking, and building vocabulary. Through show-and-tell in the classroom, role play in the speech and drama room, and music and movement, we build up their verbal communication skills. Phonics is also introduced at this stage, together with pre-writing activities to strengthen children’s muscles for future writing.
Starting from N2 (4 years old), the children will learn to read and write sentences through our phonics and reading programme. Once they establish the relationship between the sounds of the spoken language and the letters of written language, they become skilled readers. The exposure to a wide range of books also prepares the children for creative writing and journal documentation where they are encouraged to express their thoughts in words and exercise good penmanship. Our K2 children also enjoy being our “little announcer” and making a public presentation to the entire school. The ability to speak confidently is an important life skill.
Our “Literature Alive!” curriculum for K1 and K2 is designed to elevate your child’s interest in the English Language and reading. It exposes your child to different genres of children’s literature and promotes literary growth by extending vocabulary and language skills in meaningful ways. Your child will be introduced to many classic stories that have wowed generations of readers and learn basic literary elements through creative writing, reflections, discussions, and simple dramatisations. At K2, your child will progress to learning different poetic forms and be engaged in poetry writing.
